DUNC Gray Velodrome
Velodromes have a tendency to be substantially internally focused buildings with little connection from within to their external setting. By contrast, the objective here was to provide a velodrome which allowed spectators to orient themselves to the park setting while experiencing the excitement of velodrome cycling. This project was undertaken as a joint venture consultancy in association with architectural collaborative firm Ryder SJPH.
